IET Faraday Primary Resources
This collection provides lots of STEM challenges linked to science topics in the primary curriculum. Many support learning skills in D&T and can be run as a project. The challenge days support teachers in running their own Aerospace engineers or Lighthouse keeper transfer challenge day with children. They can be used to enhance the curriculum as children need to apply existing knowledge of electrical circuits, forces, design and construction in an integrated project.
Although the challenges are designed to be delivered across one day they can also be split into smaller parts and used over several weeks or within a STEM club.
These resources have been provided by the IET, (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
Investigating simple linkages using card models.
A mechanism is a device that changes movement in some way. Linkages are a type of mechanism. There are different types of linkage, each of which change movement in different ways.

This resource could be used as a short design and make project in Key Stage 2, or as the design and modelling stages of a project to make a grabber out of resistant materials.
In this activity, students will make a 'grabber' device from card.
This activity could be used in Key Stage 2 as a stand-alone activity, as a focused task to develop skills in the use of the glue gun, or as an introduction to a design and make project, such as the spaghetti bridges.
In this activity, students develop both their skills in using a glue gun and demonstrate...
This activity could be used in Key Stage 2 as a stand-alone activity, as a focused task to develop skills in the use of the glue gun, or as part of a structures project investigating bridges.
In this activity, students develop both their skills in using a glue gun and demonstrate their understanding of how...
